Tennessee Williams' Legacy
The citys most famous author has left a few traces around the city. Theres still a street called Desire (but alas no streetcar) in the Bywater neighborhood. You can walk past his house at 1014 Dumaine in the French Quarter. And the annual Tennessee Williams literary festival features a Stella shouting contest that brings out the inner Stanley in everyone.
Williams also lived in the French Quarter at 722 Toulouse. Its said that he started A Streetcar Named Desire here, before moving to Florida to finish it.
